Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Put a stop to the proliferation of "flavored" martinis
Appletinis Must Die!

A proper martini is gin or vodka with a hint of vermouth and olives (I think 3 is the perfect number)... and that’s it! That’s all! No other flavors allowed!

back in 613 and ready to go! is dealing with changes!

ok just because you're moonie's hubby...

i’ll let you off the hook for this one but really…flavoured martinis are so yummy! they are pretty colours and they don’t taste like old gym socks which is what, in my opinion, ‘traditional’ martinis taste like!

clearly you haven’t had enough yummy martinis…

quick, martini party and moonies’ house!

Just Ask Moonie...

...but I actually enjoy food and beverages that taste like old gym socks! Those sweet liqueurs are fine in small doses but more than a little just tastes icky to me.

mooniebutt is a Mommy!

Yes, you're

gross like that.

:p

You tell 'em jules!

I’ve never actually had a martini (that I remember) but if I ever do I would want a nice yummy flavor like watermelon or berry… I certainly would not want a plain, yucky, sock-flavored martini! Notice how I did not cheer this goal?

Party over herrrrre!

virtual martini party

one of these nights, once the snow starts to fall…or rain for those on the west coast…we’ll have to have a virtual martini party. we’ll get all decked out in black (pjs are ok!) and sip martinis while talking online :)

sounds like fun.

I’m game.
